From the moment we saw Donna, we knew that she was the perfect celebrant. She was warm, inviting and calming (during what was sometimes a very stressful time). She has a vibrant personality and whenever we were around her we got that 'everything is going to be okay' feeling. As a young couple, with a cheeky personality, we wanted someone who could reflect that in our ceremony. Donna weaved her magic, and our ceremony was all that and more. Donna always went that extra mile. She took care of everything, and left nothing to chance for the big day. Our ceremony was captivating, and thanks to Donna, our bridal party of 14 Adults and 4 children, knew exactly what to do and when. Perfect timing. I have never laughed and cried so much in all my life, and the same goes for our guests. At the reception almost every guest told me that our ceremony was the loveliest, most entertaining that they had been to in a long time. Two particular guests made comments that will be with me forever. One said ' I have never seen so much love, you could just feel it' and another ' Not only did we get a beautiful marriage ceremony, but a stand-up comedy show as well'. Donna made sure our day truly was the most amazing we have ever had, with so many little surprises along the way. When it was all said and done, we were able to enjoy a beautiful dinner together, courtesy of Donna, who gave us a voucher as a special gift! Donna- although I know we've said it a thousand times, THANKYOU SO MUCH. Mr AND Mrs Perry

Hi Donna, Thank you again for a lovely ceremony and all the hard work you put into it. We have watched our video again and it was fantastic. We got a nice surprise when we were going through the wishing well to find our cards, they are now in our draws ready for our first anniversary. We had many comments about our ceremony saying it was fabulous. Our photographer who is a regular in Coffs said it was one of the best he had seen and he has done over 400 weddings! It was great hearing all those special things from Scott that you had put together for him. I have attached a photo for you. Thanks Again Laura & Scott .

Hi Donna... Thank you for helping us make our special day a perfect day. Your natural warmth and inventiveness with our vows ensured that our wedding was original and a day that we will never forget. Being interstate we had to take a chance on choosing our celebrant and we were amazingly lucky to have come across you. Mario and I both agree that without your presence our day would not have been the same. We sincerely thank you for helping us to express our feelings for each other in such a heart skipping way.

Hi Donna, thank you for a beautiful and memorable service, the fact you care about what you do is reflected in the detail you went to to make our day special. We particularly love having a copy of our vows but i also loved the bamboo tripods and the way you dressed the signing table. We think you provide an overall outstanding, excellent value for money service...Lots of Love Danielle & Will DAVIS
